First of all, I'm considering the price point of this guitar as I write this review. Having said that, I have quickly dropped the disclaimer of "well for an inexpensive guitar it's pretty good". It's a really good guitar for any price! I played one in the store and loved it. I had to go back and try it again because i didn't realize that it had a push pull knob for splitting. I ended up buying one that they had in the box. The factory check list that comes with the guitar was spot on. Action? Check! Intonation? check! etc. The fret edges don't cut you. The strings where clean and actually almost perfectly in tune. Sure, I'll monkey with things on it later but the sound and feel are incredible for a beginner or pro. The neck was straight and true. I went straight to a gig that night with the plastic still on the tuning pegs. Michael Kelly guitars? Who would have guessed!
